Maria To Arnie; “i Won’t Be Back”: Schwarzenegger And Shriver Announce Split
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In a joint statement, former California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, his wife of twenty five years, announced their split. The pair were first introduced by Tom Brokaw at a celebrity tennis match in the late seventies and married in 1986. The marriage, seemingly solid for all of these years, was often cited as a success among celebrities and politicians where marriages seem to fall apart rapidly in light of scandal and heartbreak.

Schwarzenegger, who has just completed seven years as the governor of California, has hinted that he might be making his return to Hollywood now that he is done with political office. Shriver, who gave up her role as a television news reporter during the first of Arnold’s bids for office, has reportedly moved out of the couple’s California home but by all accounts, the couple has been estranged for far longer.

News of womanizing and a larger than life ego has plagued Schwarzenegger since he started his career, with a rumored clause added to his movie contracts that would provide two women to provide “massage with release” whenever needed. Several women have come forward over the years to claim that Arnold had made comments of sexual nature to them or that he had tried to grope them in different settings.

In London, Anna Richardson, a television reporter suggested that Arnie’s behavior led insiders to call him the Octopus. That incident, which took place in 2000, had him asking Richardson if her breasts were real and then pulling her onto his lap. Similar incidents, including reports of Schwarzenegger patting women on the backside or purposely brushing their breasts with his arms have also been common knowledge for years.

An unconfirmed report of an affair had public relations crews working to minimize damage of the story which was largely ignored by the American press but picked up by foreign news sources. That woman, whose identity was never legally verified, supposedly met Arnold Schwarzenegger when she was sixteen, had sex with him and then did not see him again for several years. When the “couple” met up again for the second time, sources say, they started an affair that was off and on for seven years or longer. That same story suggested that Arnold may have bribed Shriver not to leave him by giving her a car and jewelry among other things. Both Shriver and Schwarzenegger have denied this entire story as nothing but lies.

The current separation announcement comes as no surprise to those who know the couple, saying they have spent little time together for the last few years because of conflicting schedules. The announcement did not include anything about a divorce and assured the public that the couple were going to work together to come to an arrangement that worked best for them as a couple and as individuals and that they would continue to parent their four children together.
